Product Details

A. About Dew-Not Dew Heaters

Proudly made in the USA by AFAB, the Dew-Not Dew Remover is a thick film dew heater manufactured for operation at 12 volts. Sixty-six percent of the surface area is heat emitting - this means more even heat distribution and no localized hot spots or burnouts often associated with resistance wire heaters.

Dew-Not dew heater strips are probably the most power-efficient product of their kind on the market today. This is important if you use batteries to power your telescope and accessories in the field. Some competing dew heater designs use a larger amount of rubber and fabric during manufacture requiring additional power to heat up these elements before any heat is transferred to your telescope. Dew-Not's efficient design is about twice as power-efficient as its nearest competitor, so your battery will last much longer.

Dew-Not strips are manufactured to very high quality standards. Each heater has a velcro strip on one side for attachment. Each heater comes with a standard six foot cord. This cord length is longer than competing designs and provides you with a lot more flexibility in placement. The standard RCA phono-plug male connector used is compatible with Kendrick, Dew-Buster, and most other commercially available dew system controllers.

Protected by over 30 USA and international patents (relating to resistance heaters, methods of their manufacture, and innovative flexible, electrical circuitry), and carrying more than 20 years of constant improvements and enhancements, the Dew-Not Dew Remover is the ultimate in reliability and efficiency.  AFAB has been involved in the design and manufacture of resistive heating elements for over 25 years. Dew-Not's prices are also about half that of another leading competing brand. With Dew-Not, you get an excellent productand save power and money.

B. Selecting a Dew-Not Dew Heater

Dew-Not is available for all popular sized eyepieces and telescopes. To select the right dew heater for your scope, measure the circumference of your telescope tube (or measure the tube diameter - not telescope aperture - and multiply by 3.14) and pick one of the models based on length from the table below. For in-between sizes, choose the next larger size of dew heater.

Special models are also available for use with telescope controllers (DN16) and binoviewers (DN17). The Binoview binoviewer model is comprised of two eyepiece-sized 6" strips in tandem coupled with a 4" long Y-wire to a single RCA plug. The Binoview is the ultimate binoviewer optic dew remover.

C. Recommended Accessories

Optional cigarette lighter adapters can be purchased from other sources that will allow you to power the dew heater from a 12 volt power source. For controlling several Dew-Not strips from a single source, or to vary the power output, you can consider the optional Dew-Not Dual Channel Controller (Model DNC02).
